On what turned out to be a rather windy and chilly Saturday evening, we were invited to an inaugural barbeque at Ben and Lisa's. The inital inaugural barbeque had been scheduled several months ago, but unfortunately the connector from the barbeque to the gas bottle didn't, well, connect. This time, we were assured that the correct connector had been purchased, and some barbeque would be had!
So it was a rather special occasion, and in it's honour I took along a couple of sweet things. One of those items was malteser biscuits and the other was a chocolate and cherry ricotta cake (to be blogged about later).
They're quite straight forward, and contain condensed milk and chopped maltesers (I gave mine a good bash with a rolling pin). The recipe is from taste.com.au here. My only deviation from the recipe was to only add one teaspoon of vanilla essence rather than two.
The biscuits were soft and chewy, and particularly chewy in the parts that had malteser bits. If I'm going to be picky, I think they may have been a tad dry.... which was most likely my fault as I turned on the grill instead of the oven again. I didn't even realise until the biscuits had been in the oven for 10 minutes. Still, I was probably the only one who noticed the slight dryness, judging by how quickly the biscuits got gobbled up!
